The association was formed on 3 August 1950 as the Fußball-Verband Rheinland-Pfalz when the South West German Football Association left the Southern German Football Association in mutual consent over a dispute over whether the Oberliga should be played in one or two regional divisions. It was renamed on 11 July 1956 to Fußball-Verband Rheinland-Pfalz-Saar before receiving its current name on 12 July 1958.
In 2017, the FRVS had 514,692 members, 2,455 member clubs and 11,496 teams playing in its league system.
